USDA National Wool Review - 14 September 2015USDA National Wool Review - 14 September 2015

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was at a standstill this week. There were No confirmed trades. Foreign interest has been volatile and a strong dollar at the current time is causing less than ideal trade conditions. The Chinese marketplace has impacted many industries and their current situation has played a role in the wool trade over the past several weeks. There is optimism that going into the fall and early winter that there will be some stability in the market making it easier to trade. Domestic clean wool and confirmed trades are reported on a weighted average basis. Prices reflect trades FOB warehouse in original bag or square pack, bellies out, some graded, and 76 mm or longer. No allowance made for coring, freight or handling fees at the warehouse level to reflect net grower prices (*) indicates new prices this week. (NA) represents microns not normally available in this region. Wools shorter than 75 mm typically discounted .10-.20 clean. Classed and skirted wools usually trade at a .10-.20 premium to original bag prices.
